for roasting

  • 2 cups pitted and sliced fresh cherries
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup

for brownies

for garnishing


  • In a nonstick pan combine cherries and 1 tbsp maple syrup. Turn it on at high and cook for 3 minutes stirring at intervals. Turn it off and let it cool down. (Cherries should not wither and its liquid/syrup should not dry up at this stage so do not overcook). Keep 3 tbsp of cherries (without its syrup) aside in a bowl for garnishing later.
  • Preheat oven at 350-degree Fahrenheit and prepare 8-inch square or rectangle baking pan with a parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine oat flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Mix it well so there are no lumps.
  • Melt ½ cup chocolate chips in the microwave for1 minute at high. Pause and stir. If needed microwave again for 30 seconds. It should be pouring consistency.
  • Add melted chocolate chips, soaked chia seeds, maple syrup, oat milk and vanilla extract to the flour mixture and whip it into a batter.
  • Fold in cooked cherries along with its liquid/syrup. Mix again couple of times and spoon it out in the prepared baking pan.
  • Shape it with a flat spatula and top it with 3 tbsp cooked cherries (we kept it aside in step 1). Then, garnish it with 2 tbsp chocolate chips evenly on its top. Place it in the middle rack of the oven and bake it for 30 minutes. It will be slightly undone at this stage. Turn it off and take it out. Place it immediately in the refrigerator without disturbing for 15 minutes.
  • Take it out off the refrigerator and pull out the parchment paper along with the brownies. Let it cool down completely at room temperature at this point. With a clean sharp knife slice and enjoy.


  • These can be refrigerated for about 3 weeks in an air tight container in a single layer. Warm it for 30 seconds in the microwave and top it with vanilla ice cream and enjoy.
  • While keeping cooked cherries aside for garnishing make sure to only reserve cherries and not its liquid. Leave the liquid/syrup in the pan to be mixed into the batter.
  • The thickness of the slices will depend on the size of your baking pan.
